Normal values for 25 serum chemical components were determined for AKC registrable beagles. Analyses were performed on serum from 10 males and 10 females, and sex-related differences in the levels of the constituents were evaluated. The serum levels of albumin, glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase, glutamic-pyruvic transaminase, and acid phosphatase were significantly higher p .05 in males than in females. For 21 other serum components, including electrolytes, glucose, cholesterol, nonprotein nitrogenous substances, and enzymes, no significant sex-related differences were found.
